One gene for taller, stiffer and high-yield rice

Wang et al. reveal that MYB110 serves as a phosphate-dependent negative regulator of plant height that could be manipulated to boost lodging resistance and yield. https://doi.org/10.1093/plcell/koad268 Tingting Wang,1 Ming Yan,2 Mian Gu,1 Guohua Xu1 1 National Key Laboratory of Crop Genetics…

Examining apical floral decline in the indeterminate inflorescence apex of barley

Shanmugaraj et al. used spatiotemporal multi-omics studies to elucidate the mechanism of apical degeneration of barley inflorescence meristem and proposes a molecular framework behind this process, the manipulation of which may increase yield in barley and other related cereals. Nandhakumar Shanmugaraj1,…
